Marbach is currently working intensively on the topics of digitalization and industry 4.0. Marbach is also focusing on the digitalization of industrial processes. One step resulting from this project is changing invoicing from postal to digital. As of 01 August 2019, the majority of german Marbach customers will receive their invoices by email.
Simon Baumgärtner, Controlling at Marbach: "In order to be true to our motto "Packaging. Performance.You.", we will no longer send our invoices in printed form by post but electronically as of 01.08.2019. Many of our customers already receive their invoices digitally. We now also want to upgrade the remaining customers who are able to process electronic invoices. So that everyone can benefit equally from the many advantages of electronic invoicing."
Sending invoices by e-mail reduces the administrative effort involved in receiving an invoice: electronic invoices can be processed directly and do not have to be scanned first. In addition, automatic archiving and convenient searches are possible. Baumgärtner continues: "Ultimately, our customers will save time and money through the conversion. But there will also be environmental benefits."
Because invoices will no longer be sent by post, fewer resources in the form of paper will be used and mail transportation will also be eliminated. Resources will thus be conserved and the CO2 consumption that occurs during postal transport will also be avoided.
Further measures within the digitalization project will follow. This continues to be exciting development at Marbach.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is currently working intensively on the topics of digitization and industry 4.0. The main focus here is on digital solutions for tools, processes and services. Within the scope of this project, Marbach has analyzed the future requirements of its customers. The results of this are the two components CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality). CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects the thermoforming tool, Marbach and the customer. CONNECT|AR is about virtual customer support via remote maintenance.
Marbach offers an extensive portfolio of dieboards. The suitable dieboard can be selected according to the requirements of the customer or the particular order. The dieboard forms the basis of a cutting-die. The contours of the packaging are first inserted into the dieboard, then the cutting and creasing rules are positioned and finally the appropriate rubber coating is applied.
Through its Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division Marbach sells machines to die-makers. In addition to laser systems and water jet systems, Marbach has milling machines in its portfolio. The mgrav|2 is its most successful milling machine.
Marbach developed some time ago a special technology for reverse cutting to save make-ready time. This technology, known as the height-adjustable anvil, is very popular in the market. Until now, the use of this technology has been limited to high-tech duramar tools or corrugated board tools. But the height-adjustable anvil is now also available in a new version for standard folding box tools.
